Developer Makes

Bid 'for Property

The City Commission took
under study Tuesday night, an
offer from a Panama City
developer, Imperial Pines De-
velopment Company, to pur-
chase a block the City owns in
North Port St. Joe. The City
put the property up for bid at
, the request of the firm,
( stipulating that the property
be used to build housing for
the people who live in the
THE BID received Tuesday
from the firm was the only one
received on the bid call. Even
though the price was in the
range of appraisals on the
property, the Commission
didn't jump at the offer, but
took it under study for the 30
days given for the bid to be in
The bid of Imperial Pines
was $22,500 for the property,
but there were provisos at-
tached which the Conimission
wants to consider before mak-
ing a decision. Imperial Pines
wanted to break the block up
into 20 lots, each 70'X117'. On
each lot, they would build two
- town house units (duplexes)
S and sell them as they were
built. They would pay for each
lot as it was used. The
Commission had the idea of
selling the entire plot at one
time with a guarantee that the
buyer would build homes or
apartments on it.
The bid also stipulated that'
the City would furnish water

and sewer service to the block.
There is presently no water or
sewer to the north side of the
property. Mayor Frank Pate
told the developers Tuesday
night that they would be
expected to bear the expense
of putting water and sewer to
the property. "We require
others in the city to do this,
and we can't offer you any
favoritism in the matter"..
The Commission was slow to
grab the offered deal because
it was their feeling the devel-
oper could conceivably come
in, build two or three houses
and pull out, with no guaran-
tee that he would ever build on
or pay for the remainder of the

houses. "We couldn't make
any money with that kind of a'
deal. We think we can sell the
whole site."
Mayor Pate asked the de-
velopers to take a try at
pre-selling the project during
'the next two or three weeks
while the Commission studies
the offer further.
George Wimberly came be-
fore the Commission repre-
senting the Kiwanis Club.

Wimberly said, "Our club is
interested in improving the
barbecue area at the Centen-
nial. Building, but there are
certain things we don't have
the equipment to do.
Wimberly offered to fix up,
paint, improve and make the
site a useable facility if the
City would aid by re-building
the masonry pit and make
some repairs to the roof and
uprights of the pit shed.
The Commission agreed to
give what aid it could, to get
the area into first-class shape
for use by the public,.
Wimberly also made a com-
ment to the Board, saying,
"This is George Wimberly
speaking for George Wimber-
ly". He Went on to say, "I sat
on this Board for one term and
we had some tough decisions
to make during time. But, I
don't think they were as tough
as.the decisions you face now.
I can appreciate the responsi-
bility and the thankless job the
Commissioners have. Speak-
ing for myself and, I think, a
lot of other people, Thanks for
the job you are doing. I think
you are doing a dog-gone good
One of those decisions Wim-
berly talked about came up
next on the agenda when Clerk
Charles Brock told the Com-
mission they must amend the
Revenue Sharing budget.

Commission Files

Petition for Relief

With Judge McCrary

The City Commission filed a
petition for relief with senior
circuit Judge Robert McCrary
of Marianna, asking that the
recall petition against them be
The complaint calls for the
recall petition to be dismissed
on grounds that it is "an
insufficient petition and would
amount to deprivation of a
valuable property right enjoy-
ed by the Plaintiffs. The
plaintiffs are Frank Pate, Jr.,
James B. Roberts, Wesley R.
Ramsey and John Robert
The complaint also points
out that Pate and Ramsey
face re-election on May 8,
which would hold the question
of their possible recall moot.
The complaint goes on to
say, "Plaintiffs pray that this
court will . . . find that the
petition filed against the four
Commissioners is legally in-
sufficient under the laws of the
State of Florida."
The complaint claims "The
grounds which attempt to
support the statutory require-
ments are defective in that
they are either discretionary
acts or acts that would require
knowledge on the part of the
City Commissioners before
amounting to legally sufficient
grounds for recall, and to
attempt to remove some of the
Plaintiffs on an insufficient
petition would" amount to

deprivation of . . . rights
enjoyed by the plaintiffs."
The petition for relief fol-
lows a similar petition filed
last week by Roberts and
Smith, claiming the charges
listed on the recall petition do
not conform to those which are
required by Florida law.

THERE HAS BEEN enough sober things
happening here to make us just about ready for a
humorous break in the action. It's time we all
relaxed and had a big belly laugh, a titter, or a
broad grin inside.
This following article was written for exactly
that purpose and has been around. I didn't write
it, nor did the paper I copied from, nor the paper
he copied it from, nor the paper he copied it
from. In other words, it's one of those gems
someone dreamed up one day which is copied
and re-copied.
Here it is:
Miss Linda Sconyers became the bride of

Mr. John Terwilliger in nuptial ceremonies at
Nunez Baptist Church at five in the afternoon of
last Saturday.
A slight drizzle fell outside, but it did not
dampen the soft warmness of the candlelight
services, performed inside the building by the
Rev. Josehph D. Way of Savannah.
John looked as good as we've ever seen him
look. He had chosen to wear a lovely tuxedo,
especially rented for the occasion. It was of a
warm shade of brown, which perfectly compli-
mented his dark hair and matching mustache. In
his lapel he wore a little yellow flower of some
kind and it added just the touch he needed. When
he entered the sanctuary from a side door,

accompanied by his father, who was serving as
best man, John had a perfectly radiant smile and-
it was obvious he was enjoying the whole thing.
The pleasant glow of the many lighted candles,
which had been placed behind the altar in a most
thoughtful manner, gave his handsome features
an ethereal quality. There was a strong
resemblance to Rhett Butler that we had not
noticed before.
His tux featured soft satinized lapels, which
framed most fetchingly the dainty ruffled front
of the pale yellow shirt which he had slipped on
underneath his coat for the occasion. The long
sleeves were climaxed at the wrists with
elaborate ruffles of material and style matching
those of his shirt front. He wore a snap-on brown
bow tie.
From beneath the lower cascades of his coat,
which draped to fingertip length, came pants of a
soft brown color sewn from materials to
perfectly match that of his other attire. They
hung almost to the floor, but appropriately failed
to hide brilliantly shined shoes in tones of brown.
Socks of matching shades covered his feet and
ankles, held in place we presume by garters of
equal size and elasticity.

The best man and the groomsmen wore
outfits sirrilar to that of the bride-groom and
each had, in good taste, chosen boutonnieres of a
yellow flower, framed by little bitty white buds,
which matched John's.
Linda's outfit was white.
Following the ceremony, guests were invited
to the church's social hall for a lovely reception.
The focal point of the room was the two-tiered
groom's cake of traditional brown shades and
texture. The bride's cake was made from
another recipe.
After the reception, the groom left for the
honeymoon, accompanied by Linda.

THAT LITTLE piece was probably written
several years ago to spoof the usual wedding
write-ups which describe the beautiful bride in
minute detail while practically ignoring the
If ERA becomes a reality, we could very
well see many wedding write-ups similar to this.

I HEARD A STORY the other day about a
man somewhere out in the mid-west who is going
to try to set a world's record for living with
poisonous snakes.
The man plans to select 10 of the most
poisonous snakes in the world and get in a 10'X10'
cage with them. The rules are that he can come
out once every 24 hours to wash and go to the
toilet. He will eat in the cage, being very careful.
I don't know what kind of man it would take
to crawl into a small cage with 10 poisonous
snakes, but I do know that if he plans to come'out*
only every 24 hours to go to the toilet, he is a ma*

crucified, die, and resurrected
every time someone is born

this, but God has provided .
more than salvation already. *
He provided healing, food and
clothing, freedom, in fact
every good thing needed to
sustain life in abundance is
ours through faith.
Hebrews 11:1 says that
"faith is the substance of
things (no limit) hoped for, the
evidence of things (no limit)
not seen (as yet, but we can
through faith)." In Matthew
6:33, Jesus says, "But seek ye
first the kingdom of God, and
his righteousness; and all
these things (no limit) shall be
added unto you." A certain
promise from Jesus Himself.

With Summer Fruits
"7=klc '"'MIB

Light but nutritious, a fluffy rice dessert that subtly
suggests lovely weather is a wonderful way to satisfy
your family's "sweet tooth" and balance meals, too.
Ranging from simple to elaborate, rice desserts typical-
ly contain rice and milk and usually contain less sugar
than 'many other sweets. Few other desserts are as easy
or as nearly foolproof to prepare.
S They're economical too. The cost of a half-cup serving
of cooked rice is about three cents. And rice pudding can
be combined with seasonal freshly sliced summer fruits,
natural or sweetened, to make luscious desserts.
* Among the more delicious dishes you're likely to'find
is this Pineapple-Strawberry Delight that takes its cue
- from strawberries that blend so well with the crushed
pineapple mixed with the cooked rice and whipped
cream or topping.
1 pint fresh strawberries*
1 envelope (1 tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
1 can (8-1/4 ounces) crushed pineapple
(drained; reserve syrup)
2 cups cooked rice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
S*2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 envelope (1-1/2 ounces) whipped topping mix,
prepared or 1 cup of heavy cream, whipped
and sweetened
Wash strawberries;- remove stems. Sprinkle with 1/2
cup sugar. Set aside. Soften gelatin in pineapple syrup.
SHeat to dissolve. Combine gelatin, pineapple, rice, 1/2 cup
strawberries (including some juice) crushed, and vanilla.
-Whip egg whites with 3 tablespoons sugar and salt until
stiff but not dry. Fold into rice mixture. Spoon into individ-
ual molds (about 1/2 cup each). Chill until firm. Unmold
onto cold plates and top each with a dollop of whipped
Stopping and remaining strawberries. Makes 6 servings.

Plant Annuals Now for

Vivid Summer Color

Annual flowers that provide
bloom soon after planting
offer the Florida gardener an
inexpensive source of garden
color for the summer months.
Some can be planted right
where you want them to bloom
for rich displays of color.
Florida's hot and rainy
summers are tough on many
varieties of annuals but others
seem to thrive on the heat. So,
with this important considera-
tion in mind, here's a selection
of three colorful and relatively
carefree summer annuals.
Marigolds. The wide selec-
tion of marigolds offers the
gardener a real treat. Culture
is very easy, as heat, drought
and pests are tolerated well by
these flowers. Plants thrive in
sun or partial shade. You can
grow marigolds from seed
which sprout in a few days or
from started plants available
at garden shops. New varie-
ties bloom in two months and
continue to flower for several
months. Marigolds are excel-
lent for flower borders and for
edgingif dwarf varieties are
used. They also make fine cut
flowers, especially types with
odorless foliage. Check your
seed catalog or garden store
for the newest marigold varie-
,Portulaca or rose-moss is
hard to beat for summer
gardens. It is a favorite flower
for edging, borders, rock
gardens and in window boxes.
The small plants form a
ground cover of bright rose-
like flowers in white, yellow,
orange, rose and red colors.
Flowers are single or double,
one to two inches across. You
can show the tiny seed directly
where you want plants. Plant
on a well-drained site in full
sun and do not overwater.
Seed sprouts in a few days and
plants flower in several
months. Flowers only open
fully when in bright sun and
plants bloom for only a few
weeks. For continuous color
all summer, you might want to
sow seed each month. Try
portulaca in that dry area of


poor soil where few other
flowers thrive and you'll be
surprised how well this small
flower grows.
Another summer tougie is
celosia, commonly called
cockscomb. These old-fashion-
ed favorites come in two
forms - crested and plumy.
Both forms grow well in hot
summer months and can be
planted by seed or as trans-
plants. Seed germinate in a
week and plants will bloom

when two months old. Colors
include pink, purple, orange,
yellow and red on dwarf or tall
plants. The large crested
varieties have flower heads
measuring 6-10 inches across.
Plumed varieties are specta-
cular in form and provide a
dramatic display of garden
color as well as unusual cut
flowers or dried bouquets.

doubts." Montaigne

shark Baseball Has

Good Week, Wins 4

SThe Port St. Joe, Sharks
started with a young baseball
.team this season. Their youth
jnd inexperience is now being
:olished at the edges and the
:Sharks have developed into an
exciting team to watch. The
team has won four of its last
five ball games with' a team
which is now well balanced
with good hitting, pitching and
:defense. The Sharks won two
of these four games on the
10-run rule, scoring a total of
'26 runs in the 10 innings
played. ;
This awesome display of
Shark power came during the
past week, when the Sharks
handled the Apalachicola
Sharks and the Chipley Tigers
recordd to 11-9.
; Thursday of last week, the
:Sharks bruised the Apalachi-

cola nine 15-3 as Chuck
Pollock pushed his record to
2-0, striking out nine while
giving up only four hits.
The game was basically
offensive throughout as the
Sharks banged out 12 hits,
scoring three runs in the third
and 12 runs in the fourth.
The big bats for the Sharks
were Tim Beard, Steve Peak,
Chuck Pollock, Kevin Watts
and Alan Sisk, all collecting
two hits each. Beard and
Watts had one triple each and
Kevin Watts a double. Steve
Peak also had a big three RBI
Sharks hosted the Chipley
Tigers and once again had a
field day as they de-clawed the
Tigers in an 11-0 shut-out.
David Fowler was the win-
ning pitcher for the Sharks,

throwing a four-hitter with
seven strike-outs and giving
up only one walk.
Chuck Pollock went three
for three, to lead the Shark
hitting. Tim Beard drilled two
hits and David Fowler went
two for two, helping his cause.
The Sharks' scoring came in
the first, third and fifth
innings, scoring three, six and
two runs consecutively. The
clutch runs came in the fifth
as Ronald Miller hit a .single
into right field from his pinch
hitting position, scoring Pol-
lock and Woullard.

home all week long, hosting
Florida High tonight at 7:30,

- -The Board of County Com-
S missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met March 27 in
regular session with the fol-
lowing members present:
Chairman, William R.
Branch, Jimmy 0. Gortman,
James L. Tankersley, Leo
Kennedy, and Douglas C.
Birmingham. Also present
were Attorney William J.
S Rish, Administrative Assist-
ant-Mosquito Control Director
Tommy Pitts, Road Superin-
tendent Lloyd Whitfield, She-
riff Ken Murphy, and Deputy
-.Clerk Jerry Gates.
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 p.m.
Commissioner Gortman
opened the .meeting with
prayer and led the pledge of
allegiance to the flag.
The minutes of March 13, 16,
and 22, 1979 were read,
approved and adopted.
The Chairman announced
that the first order of business
would be to hold a public
hearing to discuss the adop-
tion of an ordinance regulat-
ing building in the unincorpo-
rated areas of Gulf County.
The Chairman announced that
the Board was going to
re-adopt the Southern Stand-
ai'd Building Code, which had
been in effect since 1975. He
stated the only change would
,be an increase in the permit
fees and the addition of the
energy code as mandated by
the state. Allan McCulley told
the Board interior doors on
houses were not being built
right and he asked the differ-
ence between major and mi-
nor repairs. Building Inspec-
torfE.F. Gunn stated that any
repair under $5,000 was con-
sidered minor and did 'not
require a permit unless a
* contractor was hired and the
owner desired a permit for
protection purposes. Gunn sta-
ted that maintenance of a
home was required to prevent
a home from becoming sub-
standard, but no permit was
Required to maintain a home.
Talmadge Kennedy stated
that the wording of the adver-
tisement had seemed to be an
infringement on the freedoms
of the individual that had been
foughtlor in W N d-War iand
other iwars. Thdoard pointed
out the ordinance was not to
prevent anyone from doing
any maintenance or repairs to
their home, but to protect the
consumer. Building Inspector
E.F. Gunn stated he had
assisted several home build-
ers in taking contractors to
court for performing inade-
quate construction. The Chair-
man stated the adoption of the
building code was mandated
by state law in 1974 and had
been in effect in Gulf County
since 1975. He also pointed out
that the permit fees went
directly to the Building In-
spector and that his salary
was not subsidized by the
County, but he did receive .14
cents per mile for travel. Mrs.
Sue Lewis commended the
County Commission for hav-
ing the foresight to hire Red
Gunn as Building Inspector.
She stated he was doing an
excellent job and was definite-
ly underpaid if he received
nothing but the permit fees.
Upon a question from the
audience, Gunn stated occu-
pancy and use meant the same.
thing as defined by the build-
code. He stated they meant
that when the use of a building
changed (i.e., from a home to
a restaurant) there were
certain requirements of the
building code that had to be
met. Upon request of the
audience, Administrative As-
sistant Tommy Pitts explain-
ed the increase in the permit
fees. After further discussion,
Commissioner Gortman
moved the Attorney read the
proposed ordinance. Commis-
sioner Kennedy seconded the
motion and it passed unani-
mously. The Attorney then.
read the ordinance. Commis-
sioner Gortman moved the
ordinance be adopted. Com-
missioner Kennedy seconded
the motion and it passed
unanimously. A copy of Ordi-
nance 79-1 is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Red Gunn then introduced
DeWayne Manuel, Building
Inspector for the north end of
the County, to the audience.
He stated he would be turning
over trailer inspections, to
Manuel the first of April. He
stated he was presently train-
ing Manuel. He said they were
to soon attend a school toge-
ther and Manuel would be able
to assume the entire inspec-
tion responsibilities in the
north end of the County in
approximately three months.
The Chairman then an-
nounced the Board would
consider an ordinance amend-
ing the Gulf County Land
Subdivision Regulations, Or-
dinance Number 75-3. The
Chairman stated the primary
function of this amendment
would be to require paving of
all streets in all subdivision
developments regulated by
Ordinance 75-3. Robert Na-
tions stated several persons

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1979

had called him objecting to the
requirement that roads in a
new subdivision be paved
when often the County road
leading to the subdivision was
not paved. Commissioner Bir-
mingham stated the County
had to spend so much time and
money paving subdivision
roads now that other roads
had been neglected and this
. action was being .taken to
alleviate this problem. Char-
les Cleckley stated he objected
to the County requiring a
developer to pave roads when
the County has not paved its
own roads.. Cleckley stated
* that a new subdivision brought
new taxpayers onto the tax
roll, providing a larger tax
base with which to obtain
money for roads to be paved.
Mrs. Jean Arnold stated that
the County received new tax
dollars from land under the
"greenbelt" law that was
developed. Commissioner Bir-
mingham pointed out that at
the present time no ad valo-
rem taxes were used in the
paving of roads. The Chair-
man stated that he felt it was
not right for a developer to
develop a- piece of property
and make the money off the
development and then leave
the other citizens of the
County with the burden of
,paving the roads. Mrs. Jean
Arnold stated there were
many poor people who could
not afford to live in a
subdivision with paved roads.
After further discussion, Com-.:
missioner Birmingham
moved the Attorney read the *
ordinance. Commissioner
Tankersley seconded the mo-
tion, and it passed unanimous-
ly. The Attorney then read the
Charles Clecklby asked, for
the definition of an access
road. The Attorney explained
this matter. Commissioner
Kennedy stated that the Coun-
ty should pave any road
one-half mile or less from
a new subdivision if they are
going to require the subdivi-
sion roads to be paved.
Commissioner Birmingham
then moved the Board adopt
the ordinance. Commissioner
rF Jrij~krle econdei r.mp-
tion. Commissioner nledy
then moved the ordinance be
amended so that any subdivi-
sion of twenty acres or less be
exempted from the paved
road requirement. Commis-
sioner Gortman seconded the
amendment to the motion for
discussion. Commissioner
Gortman pointed out the acre-
age of a subdivision could not
guarantee, the number of
miles of road in that subdivi-
sion. Commissioner Birming-
ham pointed out that a twenty
acre exemption would allow a
large developer to divide his
development into twenty-acre
tracts to avoid paving the
roads. Commissioner Ken-
nedy stated a twenty acre
exemption would allow the
small developer to subdivide
his property without increas-
ing paving expenses. Upon
vote, the amendment to the
motion failed With Commis-
sioner Gortman, Birming-
ham, Tankersley, and Branch
voting nay and Commissioner
Kennedy voting aye. The
Chairman announced the
Board would now vote on the
original motion. The motion
passed unanimously to adopt
Ordinance 79-2. A copy of this
ordinance is on file in the
Clerk's office.
The Chairman announced
the Board would then hold a
public hearing to consider
posting a "no wake" zone
from a point 500 yards north
from the center of the Over-
street Bridge in Gulf County to
a point south 500 yards from
the center of the Overstreet
Bridge in Gulf County. Com-
missioner Gortman moved the
Board post. the "no wake"
zone. Commissioner Kennedy
seconded the motion and it
passed unanimously.
The Chairman announced
the Board would then open
bids to provide fire insurance
for the health clinics and their
contents in Wewahitchka and
Port St.\ Joe. The Clerk
announced that the Board had
received one bid from Hannon
Insurance Company. Com-
missioner Gortman stated the
new ambulance building
should have been included in
the bids. Commissioner Bir-
mingham moved the Board
re-advertise to include the
ambulance building. Commis-
sioner Tankersley seconded
the motion and it passed with
Commissioner Branch, Tank-
ersley, Birmingham, and
Gortman voting aye. Commis-
sioner Kennedy voted nay,
stating the present insurance
expires March 31, and he felt
the Board shouldn't be without
Dave Maddox reported to
the Board that the channel
going into St. Joseph's Bay
needs maintenance dredging.
He stated that the situation is
so bad that he had notified oil
companies that he will not
bring tankers into St. Joe at

night to be unloaded at
Seminole Asphalt Company
for fear of running aground.
He stated he has been working
with various elected officials
and the Army Corps of Engi-
neers since last July in an
attempt to have the channel
dredged. He said the Army
Corps of Engineers has stated
that the Department of Envi-
ronmental Regulation has not
issued a permit. The Board
directed the Attorney to set
up a meeting with the proper
authorities to see if this
matter could be speeded up.
Mayor Bob Hale, Mexico
Beach, reported to the Board
that Mexico Beach is in the
final stages of purchasing the
Mexico Beach.Water System
from Charlie Parker and is
going to expand it and in-
crease the size of the lines. He
stated that the owners of
Gulf-Aire Subdivision in Gulf
County are interested in meet-
ing him .at the county line with
a water line so they can
purchas6ewater from him. He
asked if the Board was
interested in this as the line


of the

Gulf County Commission

could be large enough to
include other customers in the
beaches area. The Board
agreed to set up a workshop on
this matter. Hale stated he
would like for Gil Mauriello to

Seeking Money for Seafood Marketing

Plans to seek federal funding to build public
marine facilities for seafood industrial parks
in three northwest Florida counties were
announced recently by Secretary of Com-
merce Sidney Levin.
Levin said the proposed marine facilities
would provide services, docking and berthing

Panacea, Gulf County at Port St. Joe and
Franklin County at Apalachicola and Carra-

The facilities are intended to serve
industrial parks to be developed:by private

investors for receiving, processing and
shipping seafood.

potential in both national and international
markets," Levin said. "Growth of this

entire section of the state."

activity, inadequacy of existing facilities.
local economies and potential to be used for

The Governor proposes a
reduction in the millage rate
relating to ad valorem taxes,
however, a lot of the House
members feel that this parti-

enough relief to the individual
tax payer and, therefore,
there are six or seven other
proposals before the House at
this time.

I am looking forward to
participating in the decision-

research grant to the Florida Agricultural
Market Research Center.
Another grant from the Coastal Plains
Regional Commission to the Department of
Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis is
developing detailed plans to assist- local
authorities in writing their own grant
requests for federal construction funds.
Resolutions endorsing the program have
been passed by each county.
Levin said. "With the exception of
Carrabelle. sites have been selected at all

locations, property descriptions obtained and.
conceptual designs adopted by the appropri-
ate legal authorities."
He noted that the detailed study will
provide construction designs, costs, man-

private investors and users, and the economic
impact of each facility. -

public funds would be spent only for planning

Florida National Banks Earn

55c for Shareholders

John H. Manry. Jr., Presi-
dent and Chief Executive
Officer of Florida National
Banks of Florida, Inc., recent-
ly announced that Florida
National's net income for the
quarter ended March 31, 1979
was $4,104,000 or $0.55 per
share as compared , to
$3,240,000 or $0.43 per share
for the quarter ended March
31, 1978. This represents a 27
.percent increase in net income
over the same period a year
Manry stated the Compa-
ny's performance continues to
improve, but that there are

still many challenges and
opportunities left for the man-
agement of Florida National.
Manry also stated that Florida
National has taken many
preparatory steps for state-
wide branching and he feels
the residents of Florida would
be better served by a rapid
move in this direction.,
Total deposits as of March
31, 1979 were $1,554,987,000 as
compared to $1,407,640,000 a

Cracking Down

On 55 Violators

Speeding arrests made by
troopers for 1978 totaled
425,132 said the Florida High-
way Patrol today.
Records show that speeding
arrests by the Patrol increas-
ed 20 percent 'over the pre-
vious year. Of these arrests
379,462 were exceeding the 55
miles per hour speed limit.
Total FHP arrests for all
violations amounted to 704,572
which was an increase of 16
percent over 1977.
Colonel Eldrige Beach said,
"Contrary to popular belief,
we arrested i,374 trucks for
exceeding the'55 mile per hour-
speed limit."
Palm Beach County' led in

number of speeding arrests
with 32,264. Next was Orange
County with 31,420 and Dade
with 25,505.
There were 7,370 drunk
drivers arrested and 27,723 for
careless driving last year in
addition to 48,219 for driving
without an operator's license.
Traffic crashes killed 2,305
in 1978 as compared to 2,066 in
1977. Fatalities so far for 1979
are running ahead of the same
period in 1978.
Beach concluded by saying,
"Now is a good time for
drivers to start slowing down
ca.pe if.thh'y .dpt the,
energy shortage will force-
everybody to drive less and
slower. And as was proven in
1973 when the 55 mph limit
was imposed, many lives as
well as energy will be saved
through reduced speed."
